Summer Parent Letter from
Interim Principal Chris Capron

Dear Murphy Creek Families,

Welcome to Murphy Creek P-8 and the 2019-20 school year! This will be my eighth year at Murphy Creek and I am ecstatic, honored, and humbled to have this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Interim Principal of Murphy Creek P-8. I have been in education for 15 years serving as a teacher and assistant principal. My career started as a 4th and 5th grade teacher in Littleton before accepting an assistant principal job in Grand Junction. In Grand Junction, I helped turnaround a failing elementary school by building a culture empowering students to believe in themselves and implementing a standards aligned instructional program. I brought that approach to Murphy Creek seven years ago when the current 8 th graders were in first grade.
